Anita Schoppe – Instructor

The Hardin Adult Basic Education (ABE) Program is located in the basement of the Big Horn County Library.  It is sponsored by the Montana Office of Public Instruction, the Hardin School District, and the Big Horn County Library.  The purpose of the Hardin ABE Program is to provide the tutoring and testing necessary for Big Horn County residents to receive their Montana issued high school equivalency certificate, HiSET – High School Equivalency Test (formerly known as a GED).

The ABE program offers TABE assessments to place students correctly on their individual educational path, provides one-on-one tutoring to increase the academic knowledge and skills of individuals to a level consistent with a high school graduate, and is a testing center for the HiSET exam.  Students must be 16 years of age or older and no longer enrolled in school.

There is no cost to enroll in the program or receive tutoring.  The HiSET exam may cost the student $50.00.  We try to provide vouchers to cover this cost as well, but funding may not always be available.

Children’s Programing

20150129_153045The Big Horn County Library offers a PreSchool Storytime year round for 0-5 year olds.  Programs are Wednesday mornings at 10:30.  At Storytime we read a story together then do an activity tied in with the theme for the week.

In the summer we offer programs for PreSchool through 6th grades. For 8 weeks every summer we encourage kids to come to the Library for a safe gathering of friends and classmates to read together and use their imagination during craft time.
